Oh That I Had Wings
The poet wanted to get away from it all, to "wander far off. and remain in the wilderness," get out of the city, get back to the quietude of nature.
You cannot fly away like an eagle with the wings of a wren.~William Henry Hudson
So maybe we had better stay put, fight it out and grow some stronger wings; by then we might want only temporary leaves to regain strength for a renewal of the struggles.
